's been at nearly every stop in the the last two weeks. romney has had to explain the 47% remark. don't be surprised if we hear a version of this answer when it comes up wednesday night. >> if you could go back to that fundraiser, would you have said it differently? >> it's not productive for someone to get into the detail of how a campaign is going to cop l together the people i need to win an election. i'm a president for 100% of the american people and that's the real% people care about. not 47 versus anyone else. i will be president for 100% of the feem. >> of course, 47% is something we're hearing a lot in tv ads. the president's campaign continues to pound the issue on the air waves. heading into tomorrow night's debate, the president and romney each have two vulnerabilities. whatever candidate exploits his opponents will end the night with the upper hand. for the president, he hasn't fully described what his second term is going to look like. proposals in tv ads and on the stump like a million new manufacturing jobs, 100,000 new math and science teachers. feel mores a operation
within the margin of error. despite a rough couple of weeks, however, romney is well within striking distance. right here on the stage, for the first time the two candidates will go face to face. it will focus on domestic policy, things like healthcare and the economy. that's where mitt romney sees his opening. >> these debates are an opportunity for each of to us describe the path way forward. >> reporter: the public is basically split on who they think can do a better job, president obama with a one-point edge at the moment. a praise which hasn't had huge swings, everything can change in one night but both sides had tried to lower expectations. >> governor romney is a good debater. i'm just okay. >> about 6,000 to 8,000 people can fit in this arena behind me. you can expect a packed house. we are expecting tens of millions to watch from their homes, so the pressure is definitely on. >>> speaking of voters, in pennsylvania they're not going to be required to show a photo i.d. at the polls. a judge is temporarily blocking it. a judge said he wasn't convinced that every voter would be
ready for tomorrow? >> i'm getting there. >> reporter: mitt romney, who has been for weeks practicing zingers to sharply critique the president, may have gotten help from an unlikely ally. vice president joe biden today. >> how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class has been buried the last four years. how in lord's name can they justify raising their taxes? >> reporter: the romney campaign quickly seized on that comment. arguing the president's policies have hurt the middle class. taking a breather from his preparations outside las vegas today. he visited the hoover dam. >> it's spectacular and i've never seen it before. >> reporter: aides say he's been calling his family to unwind each night. while the two campaigns have gone out of their way to lower expectations, surrogates on both sides today acknowledge the debate will be a pivotal moment. >> i think it's important for viewers to get a chance to do comparison shopping. seeing the two candidates face to face, head to head. >> this cannot be about decibels. what it does have to be about, particularly for governor romne
policy speech this week. romney is taking his message to the air waves. >> i think they want to do their best to keep the people of america from understanding exactly what happened. we expect candor, we expect transparency, particularly to terrorism. >> it's hard to understand how mitt romney thinks this strategy is going to work. romney was hammered for his initial response to the attack in the middle east. he blamed the president for sympathizing with protesters. romney is a 14-point disadvantage for terrorist issues. romney can't pick a strategy and stick with it. the campaign, they used to be all about jobs. the romney slogan was obama isn't working. but then all of a sudden, the campaign was about obama care and the slogan was "repeal and replace." then that didn't work so romney moved on to we did build that. while republicans spent a night at their own convention talking about the new strategy, but that didn't work either. so recently they went with "are you better than off than you were four years ago?" but now they are abandoning it for national security message. they are
, they make it through the likely voter screen. it's been a couple tough weeks for mitt romney. that 47% mark has left a mark, if you will. is there anything you've heard that's made you more or less favorable on mitt romney, 54% say what they've heard has made them less favorable. that said, the president has a couple things not going for him on the issue of libya and egypt. more people disapprove of how he's handled the situation than approve. why is the president in a kma d commanding small lead? 57% tell us the economy is in recovery. >> chuck todd already in denver, part of our team on the ground there. and he'll be part of our on air nbc news team tomorrow evening for our live coverage. that begins 9:00 p.m. eastern time. that's when we come on the air. 6:00 pacific here on this nbc station. >>> also tonight a big court ruling for voters in one of the states that passed a law requiring identification at the polls on election day. in pennsylvania, the tough new law is now on hold after a judge said it cannot be enforced on election day, which, of course, is just 35 days away now. more o
that the american public are too bored by this. two weeks ago the senior adviser for the romney campaign said people are ready to know about the policies. that's when he said we're going to fill in the details. obviously they haven't done that. but you're right. it's very simple. you just have to make the math up. but they realize as soon as they name one deduction or one exemption that they're going to be attacked for it and they're going to try to do it until the very day of the election. >> i really crack up when i hear paul ryan use the word baseline, as if it's a very heavy, technical term that if we get into anything involving this word "baseline", everybody is going to get confused. when mac fact baseline has absolutely nothing to do with the question in any way. it seems to me, it sounds like it's the only technical budget term ryan seems to know. >> it sounds like what he's trying to say is they expect their tax cuts to generate economic growth and of course cbo won't take that into consideration. therefore there's no way to properly score the tax policy that they're putting forward. but th

into this debate. >> governor romney is dogged about the 47% remark. i want to show the interview he did this week with a local affiliate. >> if you could go back to that fund-raiser, would you have said it differently? >> it's difficult for me to know how they will cobble 51% of the people. i'm going to be a president for the 100% of the people. i demonstrated throughout my life. >> the question should be if you could go back, would you sweep that room for cameras to make sure you weren't being recorded. will that answer be enough when asked about this? as he is sure to be asked about this tomorrow night. >> i'm sure, obviously, that was a very inartful statement he said. i'm sure had he hit the rewind button, he would do it all over again. what mitt romney needs to do is connect to the people. >> is he sorry he said it or sorry he got caught saying it? there is a big difference there. sorry for saying it or sorry for being caught? >> i don't know the answer to that. listening to what he just said, he sounds like he is sorry he said it. moving forward, what he needs to do tomorrow night is connec
the previous week we had tremendous media coverage of romney's 47% figure. that is something that was in the news, got tremendous coverage at the time that quinnipiac was in the field and a lot of other polls were in the field. >> both sides will tell you they don't pay attention to the polls, but sure enough when one side is down, they'll be fast to poo-poo them. >>> we have a new nbc/"wall street journal" poll out tonight with fascinating insights ahead of tomorrow night's debates. >>> up next, i'll talk to philadelphia mayor michael nutter about the breaking news on p.a.'s voter i.d. law being blocked. >>> governor romney is a self-proclaimed red sox fan. why did he make an investment in the yankees? that was me... the day i learned i had to start insulin for my type 2 diabetes. me... thinking my only option was the vial and syringe dad used. and me... discovering once-daily levemir® flexpen. flexpen® is prefilled. doesn't need refrigeration for up to 42 days. no drawing from a vial. dial the exact dose. inject by pushing a button. flexpen® is insulin delivery... my way
about mitch romney on friday night. >> the current president, president obama was on the show last week. the challenger, mitch romney has not been on the show. we have asked him to be on the show. we have any night, any time, short notice, whenever he wants, he can be on the show. he's got 39 days. i don't want to persuade anybody unnecessarily, but if he's not here in 39 days, don't vote for him. >> coming up, one of paul ryan's jobs is to help people forget about mitch romney's 47% comment but ryan stumbled and brought it up yesterday on fox news. he really did. >>> in the rewrite tonight, now everyone knows what they should have known when he should have announced his political candidacy. arnold schwarzenegger is a clown and a liar. and arnold finally agrees with me that he is stupid. a word he just used to describe himself tonight on hannity. the stupid liar, arnold schwarzenegger is in tonight's rewrite. questions? anyone have occasional constipation, diarrhea, gas, bloating? yeah. one phillips' colon health probiotic cap each day helps defend against these digestive issues with th
% said mitt romney. and six weeks before the election. so it's a similar thing he's failed on a national level. people don't feel like he cares about people like them. they haven't done quite as much to mitigate that as they did in 2002. i mean the caveat, though, it was a state race, it was more controlled on a national scale, there's a lot more variables and it's harder to sort of make big swings in the polls. but, you know, the strategy was clearly different when he was running for governor. >> are you expecting anything major in denver? >> i think it'll be really interesting. yeah. i think, you have the whole country sort of tuning in. i think it'll be a big moment, i think romney has to have a big moment. i think it's crucial for him to change the dynamic in this race. you know, with just a short period to go. >> matt visor, awesome to talk to you. thanks for doing your homework and looking back to 2002. very insightful. it is fascinating and goes to show you, don't count anybody out. thanks. >> thanks, ash. [ feedback ] attention, well, everyone. you can now try snapshot from progr
weeks now. in the expectations game the obama campaign has seeds on romney's prook is time and the fact that he had 20 debates in the primaries to suggest he's the more experienced debater. the romney campaign says this is the president of the united states who has already been in presidential debates and this is romney's first time to do that. bill: does he have an answer ready for the 47% who do not pay income taxes. >> reporter: he does. to put the genie back in the bought and take the bite out of the remarks. deep criticism for the way he called folks who don't pay income taxes essentially lazy. here is his new remark delivered yesterday to the local fox affiliate in denver upon mr. romney's arrival. >> they want to know, will i get jobs for the american people and get rising incomes. and i'm a president for 100% of the american people. that's the real percent people care about. not 99 versus 1. not 47% versus anyone else. i will be for 100% of the people. >> reporter: but he's not walk away from the accusation that the obama agenda amounts to a dependency society. bill: one corner
was on the show last week. the challenger, mitt romney, has not been on the show. >> just vote on one issue. vote on the whole package. which one of the candidates will have the best package. >> i don't want to persuade anybody unnecessarily but if he's not here in 39 days, don't vote for him. >> it is october 1st, and it is moon shine monday. [ cheering ] >> we heard a rumor that this was a dry campus. is it? >> but we came any way. >> we came any way. >> anyway, what are we now the election is 31 days? are we that close. >> it will be 37. >> 36 or 37 days. >> we're going underwater for the underwater walrus run. rush limbaugh with--i can't do the voice--conspiring to suppress voters. here is the underwater walrus himself. >> they're designed to do exactly what i have warned you to be vigilant about, and that is to depress you and to suppress your vote. >> the top reasons why mitt romney should appear on the late show. number five, cameras are hit hidden. number three the chance to win back the lazy free loader vote. >> michael was splashed with water by the political candidate who is under inve
romney asked about this last week on his plane. you know, how has the administration handled it? he said, look, it's too early to judge it. that's not the right answer. they've handled it incorrectly. basically everybody across the political spectrum thinks they've handled it incorrectly. i wouldn't leave it to the super pacs to do my work for me. this is exactly the type of ads that conservatives are looking for. >> it appears the romney campaign got brushed back because of the criticism. >> greta: you mean they got gun-shy? >> exactly. as the folks began to show that the obama administration's story was not holding up, that there were serious problems with security there, and perhaps in other places around the world, they didn't jump on it. and, you know, if you wait until when the foreign policy debate is scheduled, which is three weeks from now, that's way too long for this to be a coherent narrative. >> greta: tomorrow a letter will be sent over to the secretary of state. we have advance copies where it lists all the incidents of danger in banghazi, even going back to last spring. >
about it, last three, four weeks of the m ka pain have been dominated by romney and missteps in the romney campaign. there hasn't been a lot of focus on what the president promised and where he fell short. i think certainly through the end of the debate season, there's going to be a huge focus on promises he made that he couldn't keep. whether it was immigration reform and his promise to tackle that right away. he didn't do it, never put a serious effort into it. his promise that health care would get more popular over time. in fact, it still remains a net unpopular with voters. and then also just the idea on the economy which we have heard a lot about that his policies would lower the unemployment rate below 8%. that didn't happen, it was a promise they made early on in the presidency and it's one no doubt you're going to hear a lot about tomorrow night. >> jim, is health care going to play heavy in these debates, do you think? is it something we're going to hear about? and how will mitt romney deal with it? he's had months and years you could argue to figure out his answer

nearly 11 in the last couple weeks or last week, romney at 217.9. 320 is a lot of electoral votes. that would be i think a mandate. >> so -- well i don't know if i would call ate mandate necessarily. if you have a small advantage in the popular vote and then if the swing states behave accordingly, obama's polling is stronger in the swing states it would look impressive on the map, it would be a below average margin for the incumbent. romney does have his work cut out for him. of the six we talked about before, the two biggest problems are probably ohio where he hasn't led in the poll by a long time and, in fact, his best polls put him down three or four points. the worst put him down nine or ten points. ohio is a huge problem for romney right now and wisconsin where he seemed to get a bounce often due when he named paul ryan has faded and see how single digits, a couple double-digit leads for obama in that state as well. without those two romney would have to sweep almost everything else including nevada, iowa, virginia, florida, you know it's possible but he's going to need a shi

suspect in the next five weeks, mr. corbett, mr. romney, mr. turzai, mr. metcalfe and their friends will attempt to create confusion and chaos now that we beat this thing back. so we're going to be just as vigorous now as we have been. your prior guest on the prior segment talked about anger. let me tell you something, chris, there's a lot of angry voters in pennsylvania. mitt romney and todd corbett for this chicanery. they're going to have a conversation with them at the polls on november the 6th. >> let me ask you, kathy, why did this creep up on so many people? i have been making some noise about it, but this is like a multistate thing, something like 20 or 30 states involved in this, all basically pushed by the republicans, all pushed to stamping down on the chance of minority people and older people to vote. clearly partisan and ethnic in nature. here we are, i may be the only one on national television yelling about this thing, but it just seems -- as bill clinton said beautifully, it's blatant and yet nobody's been raising hell about it. >> that's right. we're in the nonprof
post." the latest poll shows among likely voters the president leads 49% to 46% for romney. that's down net two points from two weeks ago when the president was up by five. to what to you attribute the movement, chuck todd? >> well, first of all, the more important number has always been the president sitting at 49% or 50%. i would go through his job approval rating at 49%, his ballot test at 49%, those converge, and that's what matters and 49% puts you in the, quote, re-elect zone. what's affecting romney, this is something we've been watching all year long. there is an enthusiasm gap among core republican voters among core democratic groups. overall there's a ten-point advantage among those republicans who call themselves nines or tens when on a scale of one to ten asked how interested they are in this election. there's been a ten-point gap pretty consistent all year. that's why for instance on the registered voter number, the president has a seven-point lead and it shrinks more than in half down to three, because the republican vote is more enthusiastic and they get through our likel

the world series. mitt romney, behind in all battleground polls for the last three weeks, now has the most to gain from a game-changing night. and the most to lose if he doesn't turn it around. as the candidates head to debate camp, rolling up their sleeves, getting down to work, each claims to be the underdog. >> governor romney, he's -- he's a good debater. i'm just okay. >> he plays, barack obama, he plays them well, too. i hate to tell you. >> reporter: mitt romney practicing with ohio senator rob portman looks like he's been getting a workout. the president sparring with john kerry, even chose a key suburb in nevada, a battleground state, for his practice session. neither candidate is known as a great debater. aides say the president doesn't like to talk in sound bites, and can be patronizing. >> you're likeable enough, hillary. >> thank you. >> reporter: romney, say advisers, can come off as out of touch with average voters. >> rick, i'll tell you what, 10,000 bucks? $10,000 bet? >> reporter: in the 52 years since the debates were first televised the first rule is appearances count.
